Thai soccer team cave rescue helped by Denver company’s 3D Earth mapping abilities


The data Intermap produced was used to identify potential drilling points when tunnelling was being considered as a rescue option. It also identified drainage pathways for fast-rising monsoon rain waters and alternative ways in and out of the cave network. — Thai NavySEAL Facebook Page/AP

The saga of 12 boys and their soccer coach who spent more than two weeks trapped in a cave in northern Thailand reached a positive conclusion on July 10 when rescuers retrieved the last of the group from their subterranean confines. 

In the Denver area, the staff of Intermap Technologies was paying close attention to the rescue efforts, in part because they directly assisted them.
